We once had paradise here on earth: we lost it and we want it back. Not even the promise of heaven dulls our hunger for happiness here on earth. We crave wealth, comforts, renown and power: we think these will make us happy. We are paradise hunters by our inborn demand for happiness here and now. We even risk losing happiness to get happiness here and now. This great drama of our lost paradise and our restless striving to get it back is the theme of this book. The curtain will not fall on this drama until one by one we shall have gone forth into everlasting success, or everlasting failure, in our search for happiness. It is the part of wisdom to study the problems that arise from our being paradise hunters. Impr 1946, 291 pages.
